Your head is itching so badly? You are catching sight of some eggs? You are raising pets? Oh no, in this case, maybe your hair is highly possible to be attacked by pesky fleas. Sound terrible, right? Don’t worry. Keep calm and perform these remedies properly.
Dish detergent, hot water and lemon extract
Prepare one basin that is large enough to soak your hair. Fill it with hot water and mix a dish detergent and one cup of lemon extract. Note that the water is hot as much as you can stand; don’t mix too much lemon juice as your scalp can’t bear. Soak your hair into the basin with 30 minutes. Rinse it off with running, warm water. At the same time, comb your hair from the root to the end to banish the remained fleas. Utilize shampoo again for the best effect.
Make a paste of baking soda and water. Rub it to your hair all over. Leave it aside for at least 15 minutes. Rinse it off under running, warm water. Gently comb your hair, which will help get rid of the fleas clinging to your hair. Baking soda is one of the most favorable, cost-effective methods to make your head no longer itching or scratching. Instead of baking soda, you also make use of the light solution of salt and water. There are no differences in steps.
Vinegar and shampoo
Apply shampoo to your hair and lather as well. Drop some vinegar on it. Gently massage your scalp in order to loosen flea eggs and make the solution absorb more deeply. Wear a shower cap and let it rest for at least 15 minutes. Finally, wash off your hair with running, warm water or use shampoo once more if you want. Don’t let vinegar touch your eyes as it can cause intense irritation because of acidity. In case, accidentally, vinegar contacts your eyes, don’t hesitate to wash your eyes off with light, warm water. To eliminate all fleas, you can make use of this remedy twice a week.
First, wash off your hair with shampoo as usual. Then pour a small amount of alcohol into your hand, and apply it to your hair. Massage your scalp, and protect your eyes from alcohol also. Leave it aside. Wash it off again. No need to use shampoo in this second head-washing. Several times will help you expel all fleas.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is also considered as “a master of dealing with annoying fleas”. Take out some shampoo. Mix tea tree oil and shampoo and stir well. Rub the solution onto your hair, and don’t forget to massage gently. Eyes are so sensitive that they can’t stand any effects of tea tree oil or alcohol or vinegar; as a result, attach great importance to them. Rinse your hair off. Repeat this treatment about three times a week until fleas are not your nightmare anymore.
Lemon-scented shampoo is believed as one of the most effective flea treatments. In fact, fleas find lemon fragrance offensive, and they often desire to stay away from it as far as possible. All you need to do is just as the common shampoo. Three or four times a week is up to your time.
No matter what method you choose, you always need to remain patient because no cure is magic. They need time to show you the flying results. More importantly, as soon as treating fleas on your hair, you must treat fleas around your house as carefully as possible. Don’t let these pests bother you anymore.
